last modified Feb 26, 2018 01:36 PM
Interested in how new technologies are commercialised? Looking for some hands-on business skills and experience?

By joining an i-Team, you will work for a term with students and researchers from across the University and a dedicated industry mentor. You will investigate the commercial potential of a real Cambridge invention, gaining hands-on skills and experience. 

Past i-Teams projects include Raspberry Pi, AQDOT, Cambridge CMOS Sensors, Sphere Fluidics, Cambridge Nanosystems, Immaterial Labs and many others.

Easter Term projects:

  1. Using single photons in visible light quantum systems, for cryptography, communications and sensing, with Dr. Rachel Oliver of Materials Science & Metallurgy, & Dr. Matthew Applegate of CAPE.
  2. Growth factors for stem cell culture, regenerative medicine and bioprocessing, with Dr. Marko Hyvonen, Biochemistry & Dr. Catherine Onley, Qkine.
  3. Finding the best healthcare applications for a natural language voice interface to web-based services, with Anthony Silver of Voice for Good.

The programme lasts for a term and includes regular group sessions, team meetings and individual work. i-Teams present their final recommendations to a business and academic audience at the end of the term.

The course starts on Monday 19 March 2018 and runs weekly on Monday evenings from Monday 23 April with a final presentation session on Thursday 21 June.

"I was one of the first students who joined i-Teams. The experience really shaped my career, as I changed professional course and from an engineering student doing his PhD, became a business consultant and then project manager, and I have now founded my own company” George Lentaris (i-Teams 2007) Founder of EnerVibe.

To find out more about i-Teams and this term’s projects visit the iTeams website.

Apply via the iTeams website no later than Monday 12 March, including a CV and a covering letter explaining which projects you want to do and why.
